Got “While Rome Burns” by Alexander Woolcott yesterday and am enjoying it muchly – I might even want to keep it – Finished “Valiant is the Word for Carrie” by Barry Benefield which wasn’t too bad but I think I wouldn’t recommend it. P.T.A. today! Letter from MacMillan wanting money on book or book on trail returned. They’ll probably get the book! Mrs. Grady’s was closed today because Joyce has Scarlet Fever! Saw Mrs. Burdette in the P.O. and she wants me to help in a Mexico project in the Junior Department! Will I! If I can! Lorraine Klyng is back in Roswell sans a job – we discussed her going into Hobbs and opening a beauty shop
